The training and education offered by well-known experts in the fields speak for themselves. All of their experience will be applied to the training seminars offered by GHRC, Inc. All courses begin with a conceptual framework for understanding the applied perspectives to public health and development. The framework includes an examination of changing ideas of what constitutes global health as well as the evolution of public health strategies. This conceptual model provides the structure for how each of the course series will interact with personal and institutional learning objectives.
The framework is interdisciplinary and aggressively focused on developing countries, including aspects of political, economic, social and environmental aspects of public health. It introduces the key roles of research and monitoring and evaluation. The framework also permits comparative analysis across countries and regions.
Our training framework is problem-oriented and learner centered. In each seminar participants will be required to gather data on a specific country for discussion and comparative analysis. Participants will be provided with a data guide sheet that explains the type of data to be collected.
The successful completion of these seminars will equip participants with an interdisciplinary and holistic understanding of public health and development.
Each participant will be required to review materials and briefly present a summary in each seminar. The students will also undertake country case studies. The seminars will be structured and presented in two formats, four-week seminars and two-week seminars. For pedagogical purposes between 20 and 30 participants are expected to e attend each seminar.
Each seminar will be fully developed after the entry levels of knowledge of the participants are assessed and their learning styles known. The following courses in the four and two-week formats have been developed to provide examples of the more complete syllabi that would be developed for each course before the program starts.
The human resources for health crisis is one of the factors underlying the poor performance of health systems to deliver effective, evidence-based interventions for priority health problems, and this crisis is more critical in developing countries.
The program targets a diverse health care workforce. The formal health care workforce ranges from highly specialized technical expertise working in higher education, in public health offices and programs, in local NGOs, to those providing health services at district level.
Public Health practitioners are people who are trained in public health and fill a range of roles ranging from management, research, teaching, social science, planning and programming. We target the following health care workers in developing countries:
• Program Coordinators
• Managers/ policy makers
• Social Science Researchers
• Public Health Dentists
• Public Health Pharmacists
• Faculty Members
• Graduate Students
• Nurses and Midwives
• Health technicians
• Health Promotion/ Education Practitioners
The successful completion of the seminars will equip participants with an interdisciplinary and holistic understanding of public health and development.
Participants will earn a Certificate upon completion of a course.
